Opening Litany based on Psalm 122


Pastor: I rejoiced with those who said to me, “Let us go to the house of the LORD.”

Congregation: Our feet rejoiced standing in the gates of the New Jerusalem, and now we are called to be city built on a hill where all the tribes and nations go up to Praise the name of the Lord our God. 

Pastor: As we light this first candle we remember that you have stirred up the power of hope among us as you announced the birth of the messiah.

Light the first Advent Candle

Congregation: We rejoice in the light that brings hope to the world and to our lives as we prepare for the coming of the Lord, let our light shine forth in this world as we live as the children you have called us to be. 

Pastor: Pray for the peace of the world and for peace in the Holy Land that all those you live may live secure and without walls.

Congregation: For the sake of our families and friends we will live in the hope of peace as we say to all, “Peace be with, and within you.”

Pastor: For the sake of the house of the LORD our God let us seek a shared prosperity for all the children of God
